Appointments Committee

Mission

Recommend to the Board of Governors the appointment of members to fill openings on state-wide boards, committees and commissions. Achieve a "balance" in all appointments as they relate to each voluntary professional activity, i.e., age, gender, geography, ethnicity, area of practice. Time Commitment: The Committee meets approximately 7 times per year, usually for 2 hours. 

The Committee and the Board of Governors consider all aspects of diversity in their recommendations and appointments.
